Two charged in 2016 murder



JACKSON TWP – Almost two years after a charred body was found near Tannersville, two men are charged with the crime.

Investigators allege in February, 2016, Randy Criste-Troutman and Michael Owens lured the victim, Demetrio Hughes, to a wooded area because of a drug deal gone bad.  They are accused of shooting Hughes, then later returning to burn the body.

Owens and Criste-Troutman are currently in state prison for unrelated crimes
